In pairs this today our Science experiment  was to build a Barometer. We made our own Barometer to measure the air pressure. When the pressure is higher the water in the tube will rise meaning the weather should be warmer, the less water in the tube means low pressure and more chance of rain.

To finish off the work we have done for anti-bullying week, we recapped what our whole school definition of bullying is. We then looked at the theme of 'Reach Out ' which is the focus of the week for 2022. We identified adults in our lives that we can reach out to if we feel worried or bullied at any point. To finish our work, we looked at ways we could reach out to others who may be experiencing bullying in school to stop them feeling isolated and unhappy.

In RE this week, we used the experience of Wangari Maathai to drive our lesson, which focused on how people are spoiling God's creation. We learned about the actions Wangari took to help stop God's creation being spoiled, by studying the story Wangari's Trees of Peace. We then created a poster to show other simple things we can do to help look after God's creation in our daily lives.

RE - 8.11.22, by Mrs Chidgey

Date: 13th Nov 2022 @ 10:33pm

This week in our RE lesson we listened to a song called 'Weird and Wonderful' by Fischy Music. The song's lyrics share some weird and wonderful facts about some of the animals that live in God's creation. The children had to listen to all the facts highlighted in the song, then choose which animal fact they found the most interesting, draw a picture of it and write down what the unusual fact is. The children were fascinated to discover dolphins sleep with one eye open, polar bears are all left-handed and kangaroos can't walk backwards. It left the children with a sense of awe and wonder about the animals in our world. 

Maths 4.11.22, by Mrs Chidgey

Date: 5th Nov 2022 @ 3:10pm

In maths this week, the children have been learning how to work systematically to find all the number bonds of any number. We have used tens frames to support us in our work and looked for patterns in the calculations that were created to then help us find missing numbers. We then applied the strategies we learned to solve a number of different problems and open-ended challenges. 

RE - 1.11.22, by Mrs Chidgey

Date: 5th Nov 2022 @ 2:30pm

To start our new unit of work on God and Creation in RE, the children were all given the chance to enjoy being creative. Christians believe that God created us all to be creative in the same way He was when he created the world. The children were able to choose what media or materials to use and what they wanted to create.  They then had to reflect on how it felt to be creative, how they felt about sharing their creations with others and how they might feel if someone was to spoil their creation. It was lovely to see the children enjoying their learning so much.

Computing 21.10.22, by Mrs Chidgey

Date: 29th Oct 2022 @ 7:20pm

The children are becoming more confident in their computing lessons now. They are able to login more independently and navigate their way around Purple Mash with more confidence. During our last lesson, the children created simple pictograms to show their peers' favourite colours using 2Count and composed a simple piece of music using 2Explore. They were able to save their work in the Year 1 folder and open it again to make some final changes. 

Maths 21.10.22, by Mrs Chidgey

Date: 29th Oct 2022 @ 5:56pm

This week in maths, the children have worked hard to understand the relationships between the different parts of addition calculations. They have used this knowledge to create addition fact families for a given set of 3 numbers. Once they were secure with the idea of fact families and how they work, they applied their knowledge to work out missing numbers and break the codes to find the numbers needed for a given answer. We finished the week by creating number sentences for 'first, then and now' number stories. We then had to think of our 'first, then and now' number stories to go with given calculations. 

Poetry Collaboration - 14.9.22, by Mrs Chidgey

Date: 18th Oct 2022 @ 6:35am

On Friday afternoon, the children enjoyed watching Paul Cookson perform some of his newest poetry around the theme of brothers and sisters. We then completed his follow up workshop to generate our own ideas to use in a poem on the same theme of brothers and sisters. The children enjoyed working in collaboration with some of the children from Years 3 and 4 and came up with some fabulous ideas for us to use.

Date: 18th Oct 2022 @ 6:34am

In Maths, the children were introduced to part whole models. These are used to help the children break whole numbers down into different parts that will then add together to make the whole. The children used counters to help them to explore the composition of different numbers within 10.

Science - 11.9.22, by Mrs Chidgey

Date: 18th Oct 2022 @ 6:32am

Last week, the children did some super writing in our history lesson about life in the 1950's. It was lovely to see them working so hard to write sentences about what they had learned

Number lines - 6.10.22, by Mrs Chidgey

Date: 9th Oct 2022 @ 11:45am

In Maths this week, we have been using number lines for the first time. We have been exploring how the number lines work and how we can use them correctly. To become more familiar with the structure of number lines, we have been filling in the missing numbers and jumping along the numbers to get from one given number to another.

PE team building - 3.10.22, by Mrs Chidgey

Date: 9th Oct 2022 @ 11:35am
